The above stats are for from Lake Magog Campground.

From Magog Campground, follow park signs to Sunburst Lake → Cerulean Lake. You will see sign to Nub Peak before arriving Elizabeth Lake. The trail was quite well defined and I had no problem following it. Simply follow the trail all the way to the summit. Beside that I can’t add much more. It’s a easy hike so you should have no problem.

Make sure to stop at The Nublet and Niblet. I think view from these sub peaks were better than the view from Nub Peak. It might be worth considering doing this hike as a sunrise or sunset trip as the trail is easy and safe enough to do it in dark. In my opinion, among the scrambles I have done in this area, I think The Nublet offers the best view of Mount Assiniboine because I could see 4 lakes and Assiniboine at once.

The view from Niblet. From Magog Camp, it only took us 1 hour to get here. Nice view for 1 hour hike.
